Holbeach United’s dreams of FA Vase glory are all over.

They were the United Counties League’s best Vase performers last season but this time the Tigers went out at the first hurdle after being exempt to the second round.

Corey Currithers put Midland League Premier Division side Walsall Wood in front after 20 minutes.

Two minutes before the interval the Tigers were on terms as Josh Ford headed in Lee Beeson’s cross.

However, Holbeach were soon chasing the game on the resumption as Currithers restored the home lead after 48 minutes.

Joey Butlin extended the advantage five minutes past the hour mark with top scorer Dan Griffiths making it 4-1 in the last minute.
